Reconciliation

Sin is a fact of life.  And all sin takes us away from the love of God. Many people become comfortable with living in the state of sin and never really make any effort to turn their hearts back toward the Lord with repentance and a firm desire to avoid sin and grow in holiness.

The good news is that Jesus Christ wants to free us from our sin, give us new life in grace, and lead us to the heights of holiness. But, because we have free will, we must be willing to say “yes” to His gifts of grace and forgiveness. The very first step along that path is to make a good, sincere, heartfelt confession of our sins.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a difficult one for many of us. We need think no further than the story of Adam and Eve in the garden. Rather than admit wrongdoing, it was so much easier for them to put the blame somewhere else.

God love us! God knows what the challenges of human life are all about. God is ready to forgive. You can change your life today, by going to confession!

The sacrament of reconciliation may be observed at times listed on the Sacraments page. Both individual and communal reconciliation services are offered.

First Reconciliation

The sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist for children who do not attend Catholic School are prepared for and celebrated in the School of Religion. This is usually done in second grade. These sacraments are celebrated in the Spring.
